We own J.V. McGee's Life Library (windows version) on CD and have been using it on the "Parallels"virtual machine" on our MAC.

We just purchased LOGOS 4 for our MAC and would like to use JV's resources WITHIN the LOGOS 4 interface.

We've been told LIBRONIX is the common engine in both products, so I assume it is an easy process.

The only problem that may exist is that LOGOS4 is in MAC format, and my J.V. program is in Windows format.

Can anyone help answer this question?

Hi Gail & Bill,

Probably the easiest solution would be to call or e-mail customer service with your serial number so that they can unlock the license for use in Logos 4.

EDIT: There is a way to sync the licenses yourself from within Libronix, but since I've only ever used Logos 4, I'm not sure of the procedure.  Someone else will probably jump in with the step-by-step for that method.

The Mac/Windows platform difference shouldn't be a problem.  The difficulty you may encounter is if your J. Vernon McGee LifeWorks runs through the old Logos Library Systems program (which it sounds to me like it does.)  

In that case, restoring your LLS licenses to your account so that Logos 4 can find them can get a bit tricky as there are lots of variable in play.  So, it would probably be most efficient for you to call and speak to a Customer Support Rep who can help you in real-time.  They are available Monday to Friday, 6am to 5pm Pacific Time at 1-800-875-6467.

Welcome Big Smile

Logos 4 and Libronix 3 can share many resource licenses; does need same Logos account.  If different accounts have been used, only option is contacting Logos Customer Service => http://www.logos.com/about/contact (phone call or email)

Logos 4 on Mac and PC share common code that can read many older Libronix book formats.

Several Logos 4 resources (e.g. "Synopsis of the Old Testament") have newer features (e.g. Bible version) that are not usable in Libronix 3.  Also, Libronix 3 can read old Personal Book Builder (PBB) files that Logos 4 cannot.  Thankful Libronix 3 and Logos 4 can peacefully coexist.  Libronix 3 is installed once on a computer (for all users) while Logos 4 is installed per user (consistent with resource licensing).

Once resource(s) unlocked in Libronix 3, recommend sync licenses (may happen during installation when serial number entry is needed).  After license sync, can use Update Now command in Logos 4 (or restart).  If Logos 4 Use Internet is Yes (default), licenses are sync'd, followed by resource scanning or downloading.

Have installed a Libronix 3 CD with serial number and license sync.  On a Windows 7 laptop with Libronix 3.0g and Logos 4.3 Beta installed, restarted Logos 4 for automatic scan (copied Libronix resource files into my Logos4 folder).  On an iMac (after license sync), restarted Logos 4.2b to download Libronix resource files into my Logos4 folder.

Observation: Logos licenses resources to an individual.  Thankful for Bob Pritchett's licensing insights => Logos’ EULA—Single user (depends on situation and marriage relationship for sharing Logos: some couples share while other couples each have their own Logos library, recommend separate libraries if Logos 4 often being used at same time to avoid many sync issues).
